We were pleased to find a kid friendly upscale Italian restaurant on our trip to Quito. The pizza was very good and the pasta tastes homemade and were delicious . My daughter, who is very picky, didn't like what she ordered. The staff went out of their way to custom make anything that she would like. The whole staff was... More

I had concerns about eating Italian food in Ecuador. Wasn't sure what could be sourced locally and how tasty it might be. Luckily Cosa Nostra was the real deal. I had Caprese Salad for a starter, that had a generous portion fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. There was balsamic vinegar, oregano, and pepper flakes already on the table so you... More

We had a great meal at this restaurant. The pizza is huge and after watching us try to read the Spanish menu our waiter gave us one in English.

When the owner tells you that her kitchen and wait staff appreciates your thanks you know that everyone is on board bringing you their best food and service.

We are happy to welcome them into the neighborhood. The pizza is thin crust with imaginative toppings. Our guests this last time had main dishes and those were good as well. Our server Ricardo was beyond helpful and patient with my smattering of Spanish. All items are fairly priced and the atmosphere is warm and friendly.

My family enjoyed our wood oven, thin crust pizza very much. We had the Marguerite pizza, one with pears and walnuts and another with black truffle oil. All very good and the pizza sizes were large. The server was extremely nice and I would recommend this place if you have a hankering for pizza while in Quito!

This place has the best pizza selection and ingredients in Quito. The flavors are pretty authentic and even though its a bit pricey, you definitely get what you paid for. The ingredients vary from pancetta to black truffle oil. Service and food is absolutely amazing. I love this place!

Description
Cosa Nostra is a "Trattoria - Pizzeria", a typical italian concept. The menu is divided into a pizza section and a pasta section with a large selection of dry pasta and fresh home made pasta like gnocchi, ravioli and lasagna. Cosa Nostra uses only organic vegetables, fresh cheese coming from Cayambe every day and extra vergin olive oil. There are special dishes, like the pizza Norcina which is very gourmet because it has a sauce made of black truffles coming directly from Italy. The desserts of Cosa Nostra are italian winners,in fact Cosa Nostra's tiramisu is prepared with real mascarpone.

Cosa Nostra is "Casa Vostra": the thing is that you have to feel home when you come here!!COSA NOSTRA has now tree locations: Baquerizo Moreno E7 -86 y Diego de Almagro, the second location is in Republica del Salvador N34-234 y Moscu. And the third location is in Orellana E11-70 e Isabel La Catolica, near the Hotel Quito.
